Craig Conroy on Cam and Strick Podcast
Who's the nicest player in NHL history? Ok yes Colton parayko is the answer. What about the second? Craig Conroy is certainly in the mix. Plus he has an eye for talent, scored a goal in a game seven of the Stanley Cup Final, and played in over 1,000 career NHL games. Conroy, now the assistant GM of the Calgary Flames is closing in on one day managing his own team, whoever gets him will be lucky. As a player, Conroy was regarded as one of the top two-way centers in the game at one point. He was a good player in St. Louis on some really good teams before taking his game to another level playing alongside class of 2020 Hall of Famer Jarome Iginla for the Flames. Conroy could score and shut you down all at once and he did it with regularity. He also played with some unreal players including throughout his career. Find me a former teammate who has something bad to say about the Potsdam, New York Native. Don't bother because you won't. He was a star player, following in his Father and Uncle's footsteps, at Clarkson University before turning pro. He got in a fight with Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy in his first ever training camp practice, played for Mike Keenan twice, and countless other superstar players. A Hobey Baker runner up in college, a Selke and Lady Byng finalist in the NHL, Craig Conroy has one story after another and he joins us on this edition of the Cam and Strick Podcast.
